Annapolis, Md., Nov. 13, 2012 – The Annapolis Great Harvest bakery, located at 208 Ridgely Ave., is supporting the Alzheimer’s Association this holiday season by selling a signature “Memory Loaf” featuring the charity’s logo atop its signature Honey Whole Wheat loaf. This fundraising effort will take place from Nov. 26 to Dec. 8. Each loaf will be tied with a special purple bow and will cost $8, 100 percent of which will be donated to the Alzheimer’s Association.

“The Alzheimer’s Association is a very important organization to us personally,” said bakery owner, Thomas Storm.  “We decided to bake these special loaves in honor of my wife, Pam’s father, Paul Sherwood, who passed away this year from Alzheimer’s. In our own small way, we want to do our part to advance and further the fight for a cure while honoring this very special man. Together, we can make a difference to fight this terrible disease.”
